Charles Haigh-Wood British, 1856-1927


Born in 1856 in Bury, England, Charles Haigh Wood was a prolific British painter. His works include portraits, landscapes, and most popular of all, "conversation pieces", which were basically story telling scenes of the society and times he lived in.

He had his work displayed at Royal Academy, Suffolk Street, and New Watercolour Society. Today, his pieces can be found in various museums such as Manchester City Art Gallery and Bury Art Museum, and are found in auctions, where they are highly coveted by collectors.
